    We purchased our refrig about 1 1/2 years ago and had nothing but trouble every since. Display shows ER FF, we unplug it and replug it and it works correctly for about 4 hours than displays ER FF again. This is the 2nd thing to go wrong with this in the last 1 1/2 years. (Ice maker went out twice) I am telling my family and friends not to buy one like this. I've gotton no help from calling Sears or Kenmore.

ER FF - found in another post = Error Freezer Fan. Removed freezer back panel (inside freezer), defrosted ice build up around fan. Error message gone for now. Easy fix at midnight - 20 minutes. Will be looking into ice-up cause.

    Thank you ~ your solution fixed the problem! Now I was glad that my husband was home and he could remove the back panel and remove the ice build up. It wasn't all that mechanically challenging...he just had to remove a few screws, unplug the ice-maker and finagle the back panel off...HOWEVER...should this problem ever arise again an, or you do not feel up to all that work just to get the fan going , I would try just unplugging it, emptying the freezer contents into a cooler, chip away at any ice build up up you can see and leaving the door open and let it defrost naturally.Takes more time, but it is a lot less work!

SOURCE: er-ff error message on Kenmore Trio 795

This is an error code that pertains to the evaporator motor but could also be the main board.
If the evaporator motor is running, the main board will probably need to be replaced.
It could be a wiring problem but it's not very likely.

If the motor is not running, some voltage checks will need to be made, at the motor and board, to determine which component has failed.
These checks require a meter and can be difficult to make, even for a technician.

SOURCE: what does ER FF mean on my Kenmore Elite bottom

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error ff is freezer fan fault. This usually happens when either the rear board has gone bad or the freezer fan itself is bad and needs to be replaced. To check what is causing the error you can start with checking the fan which is located behind the back wall inside the freezer. Also check the rear board as it might not be putting the fridge into defrost long enough and is causing the ice to build up in the freezer and thus stopping the freezer fan from turning and so causing ff error. Leave the fridge unplugged for 24hrs which will melt all the ice then plug it back if still the issue is not resolved and you hear the fan running then it is the rear board that needs to be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Kenmore model 795.71306 refrigerator is displaying an ER FF code on the frigerator temperature control


This error code Er FF indicates a problem with the main control board. When the power cord is disconnected for 30 seconds and then reconnected, it resets the board. Sometimes this procedure corrects the problem and sometimes it does, for only a short period of time. Usually in this case, the main board will need to be replaced.
Here is the board to order.

Kenmore Elite trio Error 15


This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

Kenmore elite trio refridgerator with an error code ER FF


ER FF is "Error Freezer Fan." Once the evaporator fan stops turning for more than 115 seconds, this error message2.gif will be displayed. This fridge2.gif is poorly designed and is not designed with air gaps or enough air gaps to allow air behind the back panel of the freezer2.gif where the fans and condenser coils are located thus causing ice to build up around the fan and it's ability to spin. The evaporator fan helps circulate the cold air generated by the condenser coils.

The fix is (1) defrost your refrigerator2.gif which means you'll loose all your food if you don't have another unit to keep the food in until it's done defrosting or (2) to dismantle the entire freezer by removing all the trays and railing so that you can pull the back panel far enough to get the front end of a hair dryer over the top lip of the panel to melt the ice. My unit had ice build at the top right and left corners behind the panel. I opted for the latter and didn't have to throw any food away.

Good luck

Er-FS error code: Failure of freezer sensor.
I have been finding the fuseable link in the defrost system on these models open preventing the defrost cycle.
This would involve removing the freezer back panel and removing the sensor and fuse from the evaporator.
It's just a plug in.
